The VP 179A Manifold Positioning Jig provides a very flexible platform for registering microplates to either aspiration or dispensing manifolds. The designation of "J" in the part number of a VP 178 (96) or VP 179 (384) aspiration or dispense manifold indicate that it is Jig compatible. The VP 179A provides the mechanism to adjust the X, Y or Z position of manifold tubes to many different microplates. Polypropylene microplates are very difficult to make to exact tolerances because the plates shrink as they cool out of the mold. As each microplate manufacture may produce microplates with slight differences in dimension, it is often desirable to have the ability to precisely align the manifold to the microplate. This is especially true if you are trying to aspirate supernatants and not disturb pellets, monolayers or magnetic beads captured on a magnetic post.
The Microplate Jig can also be used to precisely position our straight or slant tube aspirators into the corner of a well thus avoiding a pellet of magnetically attracted beads and achieving the maximum efficiency in removing liquids from the microplate wells.
